How about Jon Stewart for President? See Presidential candidates pandering to the pro-Israel Lobby

Watch the disgusting and shameful pandering offered by all three presidential candidates, McCain, Hillary and, yes, Obama (the supposed candidate for change) to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Peace in the Middle East as well as America's credibility and image in the world are being sacrificed at the altar of the Israel-first lobby to solicit the support of some of the most right-wing extremists in our country. This is political prostitution at best.

Watch this short video segment from the Daily News with Jon Stewart.

Now take action and sign this petition prepared by the American group Jewish Voice for Peace calling on Senators Obama and McCain to moderate their stances in the interests of a peaceful future.

I would so vote Jon Stewart for pres. This video is hilarious, yet sad at the same time.

The candidates' job is to pander to win. If they went to a Muslim organization, they would do the same thing. If they didn't pander, they wouldn't win. It's as simple as that.
